About Linda Boelsems

I have lived in this area for 30 years. Since retirement, we have stayed in many vacation rentals in fun recreational areas. My goal was to create a similar experience in my area for my guests to enjoy. I purchased this home recently and have furnished it as a home that I would not only live in but vacation in.

Linda Boelsems purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Boelsems chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We are in the beautiful Sierra foothills with lakes, hiking trails, snow, deer, turkeys. We are above the fog but below the snow (usually). It just does not get any better than this.

We never wanted to leave

  • 5 of 5

We have never used VRBO before and didn't know what to expect. From our first inquiry, the Boelsems were helpful and welcoming. Throughout our stay they went out of their way to make things easy for us. Their kindness is something we will never forget.

The house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and equipped with everything you could ever need. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierras and surrounded by the silence of nature, just stepping out the door is a joy. At any given time you may see deer or wild turkey wandering through the propertyor along the lane as you take your walks. They call it “The Treehouse” because the house is on the side of a hill, so the spacious back deck is several feet in the air and facing out on a beautiful grove of tall trees. Even though you are in a one-story house that has a main entrance at ground level, in the living room you feel like you are up in the trees as you look out on them.

We have been here for two and a half months and have loved every minute of our visit. We don't want to leave and can't wait to come back again. Thank you, Linda and Jim.

We have never used VRBO before and didn't know what to expect. From our first inquiry, the Boelsems were helpful and welcoming. Throughout our stay they went out of their way to make things easy for us. Their kindness is something we will never forget.

The house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and equipped with everything you could ever need. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierras and surrounded by the silence of nature, just opening the door is a joy. At any given time you may see deer or wild turkey wandering through the property or walking beside you along the lane. They call it “The Treehouse” because the house is on the side of a hill, so the spacious back deck is several feet in the air and facing out onto a beautiful grove of juniper and pine. Even though it is in a one-story house with a main entrance at ground level, in the living room you feel like you are up in the trees as you look out on them. It's peaceful and lovely, and truth be told, we never want to leave.

We have loved every minute of our time here and can't wait to come back again. Thank you, Linda and Jim.

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just finished up a wonderful stay at the Tree House. If you enjoy cooking you will love this kitchen. It's fully stocked with every utensil needed. Tons of platters, pots and pans & cutlery. Leave all your spices at home to, it has everything.

The beds in all the rooms where so comfortable & the linens where like being home.

All the board games & outside games are great for kids.

Beautiful lake nearby to go float in!

The Perfect Tree House

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I have stayed at the treehouse. The first time I came with my husband for a long weekend. We needed a quiet getaway and that is exactly what we got. Everything was just beautiful. The house was well stocked with whatever you might need. I was very impressed with the thoughtfulness and detail that Linda put into stocking the house. I needed to repair a strap on a bathing suit and found a sewing kit in the closet! Who thinks of that??

The second time that I stayed was just recently and my family has a "girls weekend" that we have every year and when planning it I thought of Linda and her "tree house" and felt that it was perfect for our needs. The house was just the right size and near a beautiful lake that we thoroughly enjoyed. We also were close enough to enjoy Lake Tahoe for the day. Linda also furnishes indoor games, books, DVD's and outdoor games. I have to say that this was one of the BEST girls weekends that we have had. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, quiet house to get away or have a family gathering.

Wonderful Tree House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at the Tree House. Open and inviting, you truly feel like you are at home. This is much more than your average house rental. Everything you could possibly imagine needing is at your fingertips! This home is of the finest and most comfortable we have ever been in. From the beautiful, fully equipped kitchen to the luxuriously comfortable beds, this house has been designed for your comfort and relaxation. The owners welcome you to the neighborhood with their warm hospitality and go far beyond in their quest to make you feel at home. Welcome home to the Tree House!!

Car: necessary

Snow skiing at Boreal, Squaw Valley, Sugar Bowl, Northstar is close. Water skiing on Rollins Lake or Folsom Lake. Sightseeing or shopping in our historic gold rush towns of Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada City is very popular. Coloma where gold was first discovered is a very educational short trip. Empire Mine tour is open year round but at Christmas is decorated as it would have been in the late 1800's. There are numerous festivals, music events, live theater, horse events, car shows, many many happenings here in the foothills to come and enjoy.
